The four 2010 Binghamton University Athletics Hall of Fame inductees played during Binghamton’s transition within NCAA divisions. The Hall of Fame was established in 1996, and this year’s class brings the number of members to 75. This year’s athletes were inducted during Homecoming in October.

Sarah Cartmill, basketball (1998–2002), began as a Division II player and finished her career as the America East Player of the Year in 2001–02, Binghamton’s first season in the America East. She led the Bearcats to an NCAA tournament bid, two Eastern College Athletic Conference titles and a 94–22 record in her collegiate tenure. Cartmill returned to Binghamton this year as an assistant coach for women’s basketball.

Jamie Kissel, soccer (1996–99), is the all-time scoring leader in Binghamton women’s soccer history, with 63 goals and 31 assists in 78 career games. She was a four-time all-region selection at Division II and III and led her teams to the postseason all four years. She netted seven hat tricks and set school records for assists in a game (5) and consecutive games scoring at least one goal (9).

Adam Fuchs, golf (1999–2003), was the catalyst for the golf team’s success in Division II and Division I. He won 10 individual titles and had 36 top-10 individual finishes in 50 collegiate tournaments. Fuchs produced the lowest career-scoring average in program history (74.7) and led the Bearcats to 22 team championships (including a record seven in a row) and their inaugural NCAA Division I Championship berth in 2003. He was featured in Sports Illustrated’s Faces in the Crowd.

Chris McGuire, swimming (2000–04), was a four-year standout who rewrote the swimming record books and led the men’s team to its first America East championship in 2003. The team’s four-year MVP, McGuire won 10 individual conference titles, six ECAC titles and graduated holding 12 school and four America East marks. He was the ECAC Most Outstanding Swimmer as a sophomore and the America East Most Outstanding Swimmer as a junior. In his last three seasons, McGuire won 60 of 64 races, finishing second in the other four. He was the school’s Athlete of the Year in 2000–01 and 2001–02.
